China Forest Certification Council

China currently has the highest afforestation rate of any country in the world, increasing its forest cover from 12% thirty years ago to more than 21% in 2013. The country is continuing to implement policy measures to increase the quality and quantity of its forests and aims to bring forest coverage to 23%, or 223 million hectares, by 2020.

China started studying and exploring forest certification in the 1990s with the aim of developing a forest certification system suited to China’s own national reality and forest conditions. The building of the national forest certification system started in 2001 and the resulting China Forest Certification Scheme was launched in 2010.

In February 2014, the China Forest Certification Scheme (CFCS) achieved endorsement by PEFC.
